I'm posting this for 383Elkey to help him out and because I like it!!! Simple but functional. Basically it extends the yoke stop down to keep from wheel hopping. He's going to make them adjustable and it look like it should work.
Here is a pic and I'll let him explain it.

What's ya'lls thoughts?

being a four bar style suspension it is really not going to do much since the four bar suspension locate the pinion where it does not wrap up. it will only be a bottom out snubber, it will work great on older vehicles where the rear end is suspended with leaf springs where axle wrap up happens the gain on the factory four bar style suspension would be to install urethane bushings on all bars or install the after market systems that have adjustable bars.

I disagree that it won't do much, i have all new bushings and before i installed this i had some serious wheel hop.i now don't have that problem.I'm not against the adjustable bars just the cost of them,but hey that's me ,all i know is this has worked for me and quite well actually. I run airshocks in back factory springs,and factory trailing arms. No hop :nanawrench:

Good idea,i think it needs more research,like mounting a camera someplace under the truck,and video a launch,to see what it does ,have you painted white shoe polish on the snubber and the housing ? :texas:
